    Frank Earle Schoonover (1877-1972) Magazine Story Illustration (1935). Frank E. Schoonover is best known for his portrayals of dramatic, outdoor action/adventure scenes and depictions of the west. A student of Howard Pyle, among his fellow classmates at the time were N. C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, and Harvey Dunn. The Pyle-Brandywine influence is evident in Schoonover's work throughout his productive career. He learned to paint what he knew, and was an ardent outdoorsman and seasoned traveler. He wrote his own stories and illustrated them -- this in addition to his tremendous output of illustrations for such publications as Scribner's, American Boy, Harper's, and The Ladies' Home Journal. Schoonover was also a prolific book illustrator and contributed his talents to a multitude of the classics. This painting, published in the July, 1935 issue of American Boy, accompanied the story, Beaver Woman's Vision by James Willard Schultz, with the following caption: "Sure enough a long column of riders was coming down the canyon trail, Kutenai men! And one of them was Redhorn himself!" The painting is rendered in oil on canvas, framed (32 x 36) with an approximate sight size of 26.5 x 30, and signed (initialed) middle right. An issue of the American Boy magazine is included.
